Following the success of the Pokémon Trading Card Game Illustration Contest 2022, fans are encouraged to submit their creative artwork capturing “Magical Pokémon Moments,” the official contest theme for 2024. With the option to illustrate a standard card or a Pokémon ex card, Trainers can select one of the following Pokémon to feature in their submission: Charizard, Pikachu, Eevee, Feraligatr, Flygon, Absol, Bidoof, Melmetal, Amped Form Toxtricity or Koraidon.

“We were astounded to see the sheer talent and passion of the Pokémon fan community from contest submissions in 2022,” says Barry Sams, vice president of the Pokémon TCG at The Pokémon Company International. “With the contest expanding to additional markets in 2024, we’re eager to see what our dedicated fans have in store for us and how they envision ‘Magical Pokémon Moments’ in their creative minds.”

The Pokémon Trading Card Game Illustration Contest 2024 will be open to applicants in the U.K., Canada, Australia and New Zealand for the first time, in addition to those in the U.S. and Japan.
